The New Leica D-Lux 7: Compact Size Meets High Performance

The powerhouse camera combines big image quality and detailed video recording into a travel-friendly package

November 20, 2018 — Leica Camera unveils a new evolution of their formidable D-Lux camera with the Leica D-Lux 7. The Leica D-Lux 7 is the feature-rich, Swiss Army knife of Leica compact cameras, with an unmatched versatility in a small form factor that can take you from a night on the town to a cross-country backpacking adventure, and everywhere in-between. The new camera’s performance is hallmarked by its versatile lens and large high-resolution image sensor, and enhanced by numerous new functions and features such as a touchscreen display, Bluetooth connectivity, USB-C charging and Post-Focus software effects – making the D-Lux 7 a multi-purpose everyday travel companion.

The versatile all-purpose zoom lens of the Leica D-Lux 7 is perfectly matched to the camera’s new sensor, providing maximum image quality in the smallest possible package. The fast aperture and focal length range make the camera particularly helpful for photographing any situation – for portraits, landscapes, architecture, macro close-ups and street photography. With its 17-megapixel resolution, the large four-thirds sensor of the Leica D-Lux 7 is also ideal for capturing memorable moments in low ambient light, while maintaining natural colors and fine details. Additionally, the integrated 2.8-megapixel high-resolution electronic viewfinder allows for crystal-clear viewing even in direct sunlight. The Leica D-Lux 7 also offers some mainstay features of the D-Lux line, with its quick access to automatic exposure mode, one-touch aspect ratio switch, manual setting options and a range of video functions. The camera is also equipped with a WiFi module and Bluetooth connectivity, for staying connected to your images on-the-go through the Leica FOTOS app.

Upgrades to the Leica D-Lux 7’s hardware also include various additions to its range of functions – for example, the point of focus in an image can be changed after the picture is taken. Several exposures with different points of focus can be superimposed on each other and merged with the aid of Focus Stacking, to create a greater depth of field in macro images. The camera also boasts exemplary 4K video recording – at a frame rate of up to 30 frames per second and 100 Mbit in MP4 and AVCHD-format – ensuring the highest fidelity of color and quality in your videos.  On the back of the Leica D-Lux 7, a new 1.24 million dot 3“ LCD touchscreen display allows easy control of the camera, giving new control options for both image capture and playback review . The focal point of an image can be set with a simple tap of the screen and, if the user desires, pictures can be taken without having to touch any other controls at all.

The Leica D-Lux 7 is the first camera of the D-Lux line that can be used with the free Leica FOTOS App. This enables remote control of the camera from a smartphone as well as fast and easy wireless transfer of pictures from the Leica D-Lux 7 to iOS or Android devices. Photographers can then share their pictures directly on social media or after processing them with a mobile image editing app.

To complement the classic black and silver look of the Leica D-Lux 7, users can choose from a collection of equally stylish and practical accessories such as exquisite cases, high-quality carrying straps and a supportive handgrip.

The Leica D-Lux 7 is available now at Leica Stores, Boutiques and Dealers for $1,195.
